A heart-warming story of friendship, loyalty and lots of hot chocolate!
Johan’s thinks that most problems can be solved by having a ‘magical’ cup of hot chocolate. He has a happy home, which he shares with Mum, Dad and his little sister Lani. But Johan’s friend Henry has a lot going on in his life and Johan finds out that being a supportive friend requires plenty of cups of hot chocolate … and a whole lot more. It is one of three thoughtful, entertaining and beautifully illustrated books that sensitively help development of ‘emotional literacy’ in young children.
